Good Morning! Cheesy

I'd like to either join my first swap or become a swap angel, but not quite sure how to go about it.  The swap forums and threads are very confusing to me, and I'm confused as where to start, since it seems like all swaps are 'closed'.

How does one go about becoming an angel? Do I respond to the 'angel needed' posts?

Also, I read that there is a classified area, those asking for personal swaps?  Where is that found?

Looking forward to hearing!

Hi Dee! Smiley

I've got some links that will hopefully help you out...

Here is THE link with some great swap info, which should answer any questions you have about that:

One of the main things about joining a swap is you need to have been a member for one month and have made 15 posts, which you have!

Here are the classifieds (which can also be found on the right hand side of the screen in the 'quick links' section): http://www.craftster.org/classifieds/

To become a swap angel, just reply in the topic or PM the organiser, once you are a swap angel you get 'friend of craftster' status, plus well earned crafty karma for being so nice! Smiley

This is the board which all the new swap ideas go into and discussed before they open:

And HERE is the board where the new swaps are (the ones you can join):

You may have been looking in the 'archived' swap section, which is why they were all closed! Also, some people advertise the fact that they are into personal swaps in their signatures, right underneath their posts.

Hope I helped a little Smiley

Yay, I'm so glad I could help! Cheesy or it may be the fact that I just love recruiting new swappers... Tongue hehe
